Abstract

Greengram is one of the most important pulse crop grown by the farmers of Udalguri district of Assam in rice fallows as well as in upland areas. However, most of the land remains unutilized as fallow after harvest of Kharif rice. So, greengram was demonstrated by KVK Udalguri, Lalpool using scientific cultivation practices. Fertilizer was applied as NPK@ 10-35-15 kg/ha; Compost @ 1 t/ha. Seed was treated with rhizobium culture @50 g/kg seed. The result revealed that the demonstration resulted in higher production of greengram with a grain yield of 7.8 q/ha with net income of Rs 15,400.00/ha as compared to production of grain yield of 6.0 q/ha with a net income of Rs 7,900.00/ha in farmers practice (control). The increase in yield was 30% over the farmers practice. The B:C ratio was also high in demonstration (1.65) over farmers practice (1.36).
